“Jesus Christ M.D.~The Awesome Power of Blending Medicine and Religion for Healing”: a collection of mystifying and chilling stories about people who used their spiritual beliefs to heal. “Jesus Christ M.D.~The Awesome Power of Blending Medicine and Religion for Healing” is the creation of published author, Jerry L. Old, MD. Jerry L. Old, MD has been a board-certified family physician in rural private practice, a hospice medical director, an associate professor of geriatrics and palliative medicine at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, author, national speaker, and an ordained lay minister.

Dr. Old and his wife Kristi enjoy country living in a beautiful part of Southern Kansas, where they love being outdoors and growing vegetables for the local Farmer’s Market.

Previous books include “Vintage People—The Secrets of Successful Aging” and “A Practical Guide to Palliative Care.”
“Do ancient religious practices help in healing today? Is prayer of benefit? If so, what kind of prayers? What about ‘laying on of hands’ or ‘casting out demons?’” --Jerry L. Old, MD
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Jerry L. Old, MD’s new book shares true stories of how people have used their spiritual side to heal.
Over three-fourths of patients entering a hospital wish that their healthcare providers would consider their spiritual needs as part of their medical care. Most patients, along with their healthcare professionals, struggle to understand how to use the spiritual side of healing.
Modern healthcare is based on science, so healthcare providers tend to see religion as an impediment to healing. When religious and spiritual faith are combined with the science of modern medicine, however, healthcare providers and patients have the most powerful tools for healing the world will ever know.
